On the eve of the FF1M driver draft, the AFIA today announced new Super-Licence rules which will come into effect for the 2013 season.
Under the new rules all drivers competing in FF1M must have acquired an AFIA super licence which is gained by competing in 20 races at FF2M level.
Under the rules any driver who competed in a full season of both the 2012 FF2M Season and 2012 FF2M Asia Season would qualify for a super licence however any driver who competed in just one of those championships would not.
It is worth mentioning that, of the current FF1M field, Sergio Perez would fail to qualify for a super licence as he did not compete in any series at FF2M level prior to his debut, however given his subsequent experience in FF1M he will be granted a licence. Robert Wickens would also fail to qualify as he only competed in 18 races in the 2011 Formula Renault 3.5 season but again has been granted a licence.
